The First Aid Level 1 course is a basic first aid course, an introduction to emergency care equipping learners with the skills to apply and perform basic first aid in emergencies. A First Aider are considered to be the “First Responder”. The First Responder plays a very important role in the “Patient Care Cycle”. Delivered by registered health care professionals, learners will cover theoretical knowledge and have to perform practical skills competently, such as CPR and Choking. First Aid level 1 is the starting point to the three levels of first aid, and is usually the minimum requirement to be met by companies when being inspected by governing bodies such as the Department of Labour.

Course is facilitated by a competent subject matter trainer, who utilises a combination of the following techniques to ensure that the session is practical and experiential: Discussion; Role Play; Exercises & Case Studies; Videos/DVD’s; Games, Slide Shows & Written Questions.
Ladies should preferably dress in such a manner that it is practical to practice first aid. E.g. Higher neckline tops to allow for bending / Pants or tracksuit pants due to bending and or being a patient / Flat shoes.
All staff members – Everyone should be able to perform first aid, because most people will eventually find themselves in a situation requiring it for another person or themselves. It’s better to know first aid and not need it than to need it and not know it.
